After coming to the stark realization that they were deceived by a close and trusted ally, the surviving members of the Collective struggle to find purpose in the new apocalyptic, war-torn world around them. When their paths inevitably cross, they begin a new quest to discover the truth and secrets behind the Warlord’s Chalice. Their journey soon leads them into new and uncharted territory, where they must face trials unimagined with nothing to rely on but blind faith and the words of ancient texts.

Born in North Carolina, J. Edwards Holt always knew that he wanted to be a writer. After graduating high school, he attended college and pursued a degree in education, but later decided to change course and follow his dream to become a novelist and children's author. Now a bestselling author, ordained minister, and mental health advocate, Holt spends his free time reading and helping the less fortunate in his community. He is passionate about spreading Christian messages through his writing, watching science fiction and superhero movies, and collecting comic books.


Satisfying Ending To A Saga
“I really enjoyed this book — probably even more than the first two! The ending was good, and I really liked where the characters ended up.”
